The Mount Shasta Union School District received complaints against two teachers on January 7, 2021, alleging sharing of personal political viewpoints during classroom instruction. We implemented District investigative measures and have since incorporated applicable policies and procedures. Both teachers are aware of how the classroom discussions have been perceived and impacted others. As a District, we will continue to take steps that help ensure all staff adhere to district policies. This includes appropriately providing instruction on controversial issues, such as the events that took place in our nation’s capital on January 6, 2021. Moving forward, we will also continue to work with our parents, staff and students to provide a positive learning environment. We are committed to ensuring the District is a safe place where a high level of respect and care is given to all employees and students.

This afternoon, we confirmed there has been a positive COVID test of a member of our school community. Because we've been operating largely in distance learning, there was no close contact between this person and students or their families. Please remember to continue to monitor yourself and your family for symptoms and take precautions like wearing a mask, washing your hands frequently, and maintaining a physical distance from those outside your household.

At noon today, the governor held a press conference announcing stricter regional stay-at-home orders that will be triggered if intensive care unit capacity in a region falls below 15%.  He divided the state into five regions, one of which is northern California.  They're saying our region is going to have less than 15% ICU capacity within just a few days. It is not the interest of the state to impact what is already going on with schools, and our capitol watchers are confirming that schools can continue to do what we're already doing.  They are working on getting this all in writing. MSUSD will be able to continue to operate our modified learning hub model that we are currently running, so today's announcement doesn't change anything for us, even as our region is moving into having less than 15% ICU capacity. Please reach out to your school's principal or your student's teacher if you have any questions, and continue to abide by best practices to keep you and your loved ones safe during this time.
